Technical Abstract: Primary goals for effective feeding are to deliver the right amount of feed at the right time. Hand feeding allows producers to closely monitor their stocks, while automation cuts costs. Production goals may call for specialized diets to meet market or other demands. Ongoing evaluation of feed management strategies can help optimize culture conditions and maintain efficiency.
